My studio’s been burgled – Please look over this kit list

May 22, 2009 at 1:03 pm 5 comments

The night before last thieves broke into my studio, and virtually emptied it.

It was a tight, clean job; I didn’t hear a thing, and from the few things that they didn’t take, it’s obvious that they knew what they were looking for. Not only have I lost my entire studio, but I’ve lost the source and master files for every tune I’ve ever written; they were on my PC and backup drive, and they took both. So you can imagine, I’m pretty damn gutted right now.

So, I just wanted to publish this list of the main things that were taken, and to ask you to look over it, just in case you’re approached by someone with kit to sell.

Here’s the list of the stuff I can remember off the top of  my head; I haven’t been able to do a thorough stock-take, as I’m still waiting for SOC officers to come and do their forensics etc.

I’ve added a link next to every item that I could find a photo of, so that you know what to look out for.

    Aw that’s bollocks mate, I’d be destroyed. I’ll re-tweet for you, (Credit to slummymummy1.) Here’s hoping at the very least you manage to get some of your things back. Keep your chin up 😉
